VB6 Split

I have two projects:

1) If I type Split( in the first one I get yellow help 'Expression as string etc

2) If I Type Split( in the secong one I get 'SplitNum as String'

I cannot see why the second application will not give me the correct SPLIT function. The first 4 items in references ar the same in both.

I feel that the second project must contain references that are over writing the split function.

Any ideas?

How have you declared the variables you're trying to split?

Click with your right mouse button on split an choose definition. You will then see from where does the split function comes.
Or just type VBA.Split an you will get the right one.

Hope I helped.

Thanks Ivan,

I had created a global function in the second project to split a user string.

Although I have been programing specifically with VB6 for 2 1/2 years now I had never noticed a right click as you suggested.

I have prefixed with VBA.Split and the code works perfectly.
